MAC Fabulous Felines Look: Leopard Luxe

MAC Fabulous Felines Look:  Leopard Luxe

I really don’t like the Leopard Luxe eyeshadow quad.  I just find the colors to be so… unappealing when paired together.  It’s like this peachy brown getting mixed with a dirty brown and gray.  Perhaps the usage of green, blue, or gunmetal could have made this palette work better.   The colors seemed awkward to me–not inherently bad–but not very complementary.   I will also reiterate that using the Superslick Liquid Eyeliner on the lower lash line went about as well as the time before–it just dries awkwardly around the roots of the lower lashes and seems to crumble a bit.

I normally find myself liking products more when I use them, rather than simply swatching them, but I’m even less keen on it after using it in a look.  If you want a great, slightly smoky quad, try (all MAC) Gleam, Goldmine, Soft Brown, and Bronze.  If you want something a little “unusual,” try switching out Bronze for something like Coppering, Cranberry, or Sumptuous Olive.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Apply Lithe pigment all over the lid with the 239 and mixing medium. Using the 239, apply Wild By Nature eyeshadow on the lower lid. Lightly blend Notoriety eyeshadow in the crease with the 239. Blend Furiously Fabulous eyeshadow above the crease.   Highlight the brow bone with Prized eyeshadow with the 239 and blend with Furiously Fabulous eyeshadow to soften.  Bring everything together by applying Smoky Heir liner on the lower lash line layered with Crash liner. Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Bite of an Apple blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.  Highlight cheekbones with Amber Diamond skin shimmer with the 165.

For lips, apply Out Minxed lipstick as a base color, then layer Viva Glam Cyndi lipglass on top for a complementing lip.

MAC Fabulous Felines Look: Mostly Neutral

Here’s just a real quick look using some of the Fabulous Felines products! :)  Hope you’re enjoying your Saturday… while I sit here on break from class, LOL.  I don’t really recommend using the Superslick liners on the lower lash line — even when I used a separate brush (must!), it seemed to look less smooth there — I think it just dried around the individual lashes and didn’t work out.  But I’ll try it again over the next week and see if I can get it working better next time.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Apply Lithe pigment all over the lid with the 239 and mixing medium.  Using the 239, apply Burmese Beauty eyeshadow on the lower third of the eye lid along the upper lash line.  Lightly blend Skintone 2 eyeshadow above Burmese Beauty eyeshadow and above the crease.  Blend Prized eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Smoky Heir liner on the lower lash line and Marked for Glamour liner on the upper lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Darkly My Dear blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Kittenish lipstick as a base color, then layer Docile lipglass on top for a complementing lip.
